J.D. Power Sets Sights on European Expansion with Completion of Autovista Group Acquisition

Integration of European Automotive Data and Analytics Provider Further Expands Industry-Leading Vehicle Valuation and Specification Capabilities

J.D. Power, a global leader in data analytics, today announced the completion of its acquisition of Autovista Group, a leading pan-European and Australian automotive data, analytics and industry insights provider. The acquisition, which was announced in September 2023, brings together Autovista Group’s comprehensive datasets, insights and industry expertise with J.D. Power market-leading predictive analytics and valuation and customer experience datasets.

“Autovista Group is home to some of Europe and Australia’s most well-known brands in automobile valuation, repair estimation and predictive analytics, and they have been pioneering the use of data-driven insights since the early 1930s,” said Dave Habiger, president and CEO at J.D. Power. “Bringing the Autovista Group team into the J.D. Power family will help leverage our complementary strengths to develop even more powerful insights and forecasting solutions for our worldwide client base.”

Through its six leading brands—Autovista, Eurotax, Glass’s, Schwacke, Rødboka and EV Volumes—Autovista Group standardizes and categorizes hundreds of technical attributes for virtually every vehicle produced in their markets, providing clients with a 360-degree view of detailed vehicle data for use in valuations, forecasts and repair estimates. In addition, its robust analytic solutions and team of experienced analysts are relied upon by stakeholders throughout the automobile industry for detailed insights and benchmarks for vehicle values and ownership, repair and replacement costs.

“We are living at an historic moment in the automobile industry when future success will largely be determined by how well the industry adapts to massive changes in everything from new powertrains to the use of AI,” said Lindsey Roberts, formerly CEO at Autovista Group and now president at J.D. Power Europe. “I believe our mutual obsession with data-driven innovation will help our clients navigate through this period of change with confidence.”

Along with Roberts, Autovista Group’s senior leadership and its 750 employees will continue with the company and will become the J.D. Power automotive data and analytics platform for Europe and Australia.

Autovista Group was previously owned by Hayfin Capital Management, a leading European alternative asset management firm.

RBC Capital Markets served as exclusive financial advisor and Kirkland & Ellis served as legal advisor to J.D. Power. TD Cowen served as exclusive financial advisor and Macfarlanes, Cravath, Swaine & Moore and Mishcon de Reya served as legal advisors to Autovista Group and Hayfin.
